Report

The 1992 Carlsberg Irish Ice Hockey League featured the Dublin flyers for the first time, who along with the Coleraine Jets were the only teams not based at the Dundonald Olympic Ice Rink. Fuel Services Oilers were the defending champions, and all of the Northern Ireland teams could boast semi-pro Canadian players on their roster. The Dublin Flyers had a very fit 55-year-old Japanese Businessman to call upon for experience, while all the other players in the Dublin team learnt what they could from watching TV.

The flyers had done badly in a few friendlies with Northern teams the previous season and not much was expected of them but were 6-1 up in the first period against the Belfast Panthers in their first match before the Panthers knew what hit them, and drew with Fuel Services Oilers, the defending champions, in their second match.

Match Reports

Week 1 (23 September 2019): NI Tridents B 5 Latvian Hawks B 4

Week 2 (28 September 2019): Latvian Hawks B 6 Flying Ducks 10

The Hawks had experience but the young Ducks skaters had the fuel in the third as they ran out 10-6 winners in a thrilling night. [6]

Week 4 (12 October 2019): Flying Ducks 5 NI Tridents B 3

The Tridents played a point-to-point game but the Ducks flew togehter and came out 5-3 winners. Ingus Divinis (4 Points) and Daragh Daly (3 Points) had impressive games for the Flying Ducks. [7]

Week 5 (21 October 2019): NI Tridents B 6 Celtic Clovers 2

The Celtic Clovers were on fire in the first period, and the Tridents B had no answer as the Clovers deservedly finished 2-0 up. After getting the hair-dryer treatment from the bench the Tridents B came out all-guns-blazing in the second period, catching the Clovers unawares with two quick goals. The Clovers looked a bit shell-shocked, but that didn’t last long. They were however, unable to get past the dogged-resistance of the Tridents. The Final Period was end-to-end Hockey with neither team giving an inch, but the Home Team Tridents found the extra fuel to score another three goals, leaving it 6-2 at the end. [8]

Week 6 (2 November 2019): Celtic Clovers w/o Flying Ducks scr.

Due to circumstances beyond their control, the Flying Ducks had to forfeit their match with the Celtic Clovers. [10]

Report

Week 1 (21 September 2019): Dundalk Warriors 7 Kilkenny City Storm 4

Dundalk were made to fight for the win against Kilkenny, with three quick goals in the final minutes of the 3rd period securing victory. Kilkenny had taken an early lead but Dundalk hit two goals to take a one goal advantage at the end of the 2st period. Kilkenny upped the tempo in the second period, as the the Warriors defense struggled to keep up with the dump and chase tactics of the Storm. It was level at 3-3 at the end of the second. Dundalk restored their advantage early in the third, but Kilkenny hit an equaliser not long afterwards. Kilkenny ran out of steam in the final 10 minutes, and Dundalk’s positioning was used to their advantage as they hit the three quick goals for the win. [2-3]

Week 2 (7 October 2019): NI Tridents A 0 Dundalk Latvian Hawks 2

An action packed game full of penalties and chances saw the teams trade shots until late in the first period when the Hawks managed to put one past the screened Tridents goalie. In the second period the Tridents threw everything at the Hawks in search of the equaliser but could not get past the Hawks goalie. The Third period saw tempers frayed with a whole lot of penalties resulting, which the Hawks took advantage of, wrapping the game up with a second goal. [6]

Week 3 (19 October 2019): Kilkenny City Storm 3 NI Tridents 0

A heavy hitting game saw Kilkenny spend a combined total of 20 minutes in the penalty box, however, the Tridents couldn’t capitalise, and the Storm ran out 3-0 winners. [7]

Week 4 (26 October 2019): Dundalk Latvian Hawks 1 Dundalk Warriors 2

It was rough, tough game between the two Dundalk based sides, with teams matching each other until late in the second period, when the Hawks scored a nice slapshot from the redline. In the 3rd period the Warriors up the pace, knowing they needed shots on target. Warriors golaie got a nice assist, setting up Kenny Redmond, who deked left, then right, and equalised with a nice tuck in between the post and the Hawks goalie. In the Final Period, the desperate Warriors managed to keep the Hawks at bay as they kept shots coming from every angle. With a crimmage in front of the Hawks goal, Michael Collins managed to tip one in the back door to give the Warriors a 2-1 win. [8]

Report

This was the first Ice Hockey League in Ireland since 1940, and as with the present day, was non-sectarian, with many players from the Nationalist Community playing for the North End Racers [9]. All games were played at King’s Hall, Belfast.

Balmoral Wasps managed to keep their unbeaten record intact until February, where they battled back from two-goals down with a five-man all-out attack to get back on level terms with Shorts Redwings.

Information Needed.

This record is incomplete, there are four, possibly five, matches missing from the results list, and possibly playoff/cup games too. If you or anyone you know can fill in the record I would be very grateful.
